Just drill the two pieces and zip tie them together, a new shroud will break as quickly as the last and afterall it's a KLR. I finally resolved the breaking shroud issue with an IMS tank.

I gorilla glued it last night then used colored sharpies to try and hide the repair. Looks alittle crappy but oh well. Learned a good lesson, I can't ride it like my previous dirtbike and it's certainly heavier.

Happened to me also. I bought mine from the dealer. It was only about $15 more expensive than bike bandit. Next purchase for me is crashbars!

The shroud was more cracked then shattered so used gorilla glue to just keep the pieces from moving around. Looking for a cool bumper sticker to lay over it to cover the damage. No, no rash, wish I had a cool story to go along with the tip over but just simple stupidity.
